Setting the scope for light-weight Web-based applications

Unfinished version of an essay on ‘Web applications’. – “The light-weight, Web-based applications (‘webapps’) of this essay are small, platform-independent programs that are downloaded on demand and execute inside a client program, such as a browser. They are thus like Java applets, but more ‘script-like’ than ‘program-like’ and therefore easier to write in many cases (though harder in others). They have a clearly separated user interface, that allows webapps to be easily adapted to different devices.” (Bert BosThe W3C Workshop on Web Applications and Compound Documents Position Papers)
